Did anyone else read this? http://www.jambands.com/news/2013/04/26/john-kadlecik-posts-statement-on-bob-weir-s-collapse

John's comments....."1st reaction: holy shit, man down!

Then, I see several crew racing to help, going to be by his side faster than I can put my guitar down…

Next thought: what is Phil going to do? He’s playing on… Bobby had help at this point, so the next person in need of support was Phil…

Pretty f*d up moment… but Bobby wanted to finish the show!

Sometimes the rock n roll life is not all rainbows & fairy dust…"

...... multiple sources have reported that Kadlecik also posted the following response:

"Bob (weir) wanted to play… if Phil, the crew & management couldn’t talk him out of it, you think i have some magic power? This wasn’t overpartying, btw, it was accidentally taking an ambien instead of a painkiller… the shoulder injury is real, & the white guitar just showed up the last couple of shows because it only weighs 3 or 4 lbs"
